Amazing!! Very professional, knowledgeable, time efficient, and true artists in their trade! I highly recommend Plush to anyone looking for an on-site make-up artist or hair stylist. With their on-site services they helped take the stress out of extra travel in a city I'm not familiar with for my destination elopement. I felt like a VIP on my special day with them showing up with all of the equipment needed, from the chair to bobby pins, to turn my hotel room into a VIP dressing room! Communication with them for planning was professional and up to date using text and email. My experience with Plush was outstanding!

I booked both hair and makeup for me and my bridal party. I loved both! Jacynda was professional and easy to keep in touch with. She was really receptive to feedback during the trial run and I couldn't be happier with how all our makeup and hair turned out. The price was also really hard to beat for the quality. Would absolutely recommend.

Plush did my bridal hair and makeup and my 13 year old daughters for my wedding on May 22, 2017. The ladies were very professional and did an excellent job. All they had to do was glance at the pictures we had of what we wanted and they matched it perfectly. Definitely recommend!

Phoebe is just incredible! She is so talented and made all my bridesmaids look & feel beautiful! I loved the way she accentuated all the girls' natural beauty, making them look like themselves instead of overly made up. I cannot recommend her enough. She is so kind and was right on time with all her supplies ready to go. So many people asked for her business card before she left! Thank you Phoebe!!! You helped make my big day go so smoothly!

Working with Jacqueline was a delight from beginning to end. She was on time and ready to work and didn't let the chaos and stress surrounding her, affect her composure or smile. She was a breath of fresh air. The makeup was beautiful, my husband loved it! The eyelash inserts last a really long time and she also leaves you with the shade of lipstick she uses for re-application during the event which really came in handy! Overall, I am extremely happy with her services, products and personality. Thanks for everything Jacqueline!

I don't even know where to begin, if I could give Sarah 100+ stars I would! She was amazing and so professional. She came to my rescue three weeks before my wedding after the girl I hired totally put me on the back burner. Sarah was there for me and made me her number one priority. Not only did she come to my rescue, she also accommodated my party of 10, yes 10. She made sure she had two other makeup/stylists to get the job done. They were all equally as amazing! She made me her number one priority, came to my house for a free makeup/hair trial that was absolutely gorgeous. She kept in contact, gave me options and was very organized prior to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, 8/20/2016, she was early, she and the other girls took such good care of my wedding party. The stylists fit right in, personable and had a great time while doing a great job. Everyone was so beautiful, I felt glamorous on my wedding day. She made everything perfect! Not only is Sarah an amazing makeup artist and stylist, she has a heart of gold and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to feel/look amazing on their wedding day!

Unprofessional. Unreliable. Rude. Disappointing to have scheduled appointment on site showing the date and time being available. After requesting confirmation from hairdresser had to wait 2 to 3 days to finally hear back saying that she is in San Diego unable to make the appointment. Her site says she's located in Carlsbad...Don't waste your time with these sites, the last "make up artist" I hired, showed up 1 hour late and seemed hung over:( Better to simply go to a professional salon. You never know whose going to show up at your door step!

Lily and her team were great! She was always responsive to my e-mails, gave great beauty tips and advice. On the day of my wedding she was very friendly and calm despite the amount of females at my house getting ready. She did my make-up and hair beautifully, I received loads of compliments and I was very happy with my look. I also very much appreciated that she made an effort to talk to my family and get to know all of us. My girls and I all looked beautiful and I couldn't be happier!! Stephanie

Lily did a wonderful job with my bridal hair and makeup! It lasted all day and it looked fantastic in pictures! Although she was recovering from the flu, my mother-in-law looked radiant with Lily’s handy work, and I know my maid of honor loved her hair style as well. Lily was very easy to communicate with and a pleasure to work with.

I truly believe that applying beautiful natural looking makeup onto a person who usually wears none is one of the hardest jobs in the beauty industry. I am a seasoned hairdresser who has been doing event styling since 2010. My resume includes Fashion Shows, Pageants, Weddings, and I even placed among the top ten for Hairdresser of the year at the RAW awards in San Diego. Every photo I have in my personal portfolio is dependent on a great makeup artist to compliment my work. Avante Garde styles are easy and funky and many rookie makeup artists can pull that off. To really nail a natural look requires a very high level of skill. For so many reasons in my world it is important that both hair and makeup balance each other! Christine Tran is by far the best and most versitile beauty industry professional I have worked with in my career. I have almost gotten to a point that I won't come unless they have hired her to work with me! She is polished and on time and she arrives with everything she needs and more in an organized and clean kit. I have seen her blow through 10 bridesmaids ages (14-84!) flawlessly and without taking a break. Each one looks as pristine as the previous. She is fast and efficient and I have seen people change their minds close to the last second and she will change their look with a smile. When people wear false lashes for the first time they almost always complain that it feels awkward. Not if Christine applied them!! No complaining and no running behind schedule with this makeup artist! I look forward to working with you again Christine (a totally inevitable statement since every time we manage to get another gig booked the same day!)

Pageant girls look no further! I hired Christine to do my hair and makeup to compete in a recent pageant. Christine and her team transformed a plain Jane working mom into a glamorous beauty queen. I felt amazing! Christine made me look flawless. She gave me smoky eyes, airbrushed my foundation and paired the perfect red lipstick to complete the look. Christine stayed with me throughout the entire competition and went above and beyond her duties as a makeup artist. She helped me changed into my evening gown. She touched up my makeup and she cheered for me in the audience. In pageants, we need to look and feel our best when we compete. I truly believe that Christine gave me the added confidence that I needed to take home the crown. I will be forever thankful to Christine and her team for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming Mrs. Asia San Diego 2016.

WOW!!! AMAZINGLY TALENTED women!!! They did an AWESOME job doing my bridal makeup and hair and 2 other women and one 12 year old girl in my group! I thought my trial makeup and hair were awesome!! My “day of” makeup hair exceeded the high expectations they had already set for them!! They are fun, friendly, talented, punctual, and their goal is to make you the most beautiful you can look. I cannot say enough about how phenomenal their work is. All night I heard about how I looked stunning for my wedding on October 14, 2017. My hair looked breathtaking, my makeup was stunning! If you are looking for a dream team of hair and makeup for your event, do yourself a favor and hire these women!!! They are worth every penny and more! 10 out of 10 stars from me! They went above and beyond and their prices are the most reasonable out there! I will definitely hire them again for all of my special occasion hair and makeup needs.

I procrastinated with getting maternity photos taken, especially since I was not feeling attractive...but as my due date fast approached, I feared I would regret not taking photos. I scrambled not only to find a photographer, but also a dress, and almost forgot about having my make up done! Thuy from Fresh Face Era was so quick to respond and tend to my needs! I've seen Thuy's work through wedding photographers and instagram and was so happy that she was able to help me on short notice. She has a great eye for beauty and used her expertise to give me the natural make up look appropriate for a soon to be mom :). (but if I had a wedding or ball to go to, I would be more than happy for her to glam me up! I've seen her work and it's definitely glamorous!) The make up turned out beautifully on the photos. Thank you so much Thuy from Fresh Face Era for making me feel beautiful during times when a pregnant woman needed it =p.

I had Brooke do my hair and the hair for all of my bridesmaids for my wedding. I loved Brooke's attitude. She was so enthusiastic and positive during the whole process. I was nervous during the pretrial but then I felt extremely comfortable with her and felt that I could talk about my hair ideas with her; she really listened to what I wanted. It was never a struggle with her. The day of the wedding went smoothly and she allowed herself a perfect amount of time to finish and to touch up. Plus, she did a wonderful job with my bridesmaids and all of us got multiple compliments. Would recommend her service to anyone. She is so talented and a wonderful person to work with!

Brooklyn did my hair for my wedding in September. I reached out to her with a picture that I found on Pinterest, you know, the kind of hairstyle that seems so easy you could do it yourself, but 15 tries in and you realize you just aren't capable of it. She agreed to help me out and let me tell you, it was beyond my expectations. It was exactly the "Pinterest" look that I was wanting. On top of that, she was so sweet and on time (I showed up late and she still waited for me!) I can't thank you enough for giving me perfect Pinterest hair!

Brooke was amazing!! She did my hair for a wedding I was in and it was beautiful. She worked off a Pinterest picture I showed her and it came out just how I wanted.

I would highly recommend Brooke for any future hair styling needs.

I had my hair cut by Chanel for about 3 years until she moved. In trying to write this review I can't even find the words to describe how wonderful she was as my stylist. My hair was perfect Every. Single. Time. She did all 7 of my bridsmaids hair for my wedding and they were flawless. She gave me updo's for several occasions from custom Lady Gaga hair bows (twice) to classic yet modern and envy-inducing elegant styles for weddings or other events I was attending. I would give anything in this world for one more Chanel Mizani haircut. She is beyond amazing and if there was a 6 star option to rate her I would have given it in a heartbeat.

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

Amanda recently did the hair styling for my wedding last weekend and I can't say enough great things about her! First off, she was very flexible, calm under pressure, and was very reliable (even working with a very sore thumb & wrist!). Her pricing was also so reasonable, it was truly a bargain for the quality work she provided. She didn't charge me a travel fee, nor an extra amount for the assistant she brought to help her finish sooner with my 4 person bridal party, nor did she charge anything extra for the bridal hairstyle relative to everyone else (instead, a very reasonable flat rate for each head of hair styled). I received so many compliments about my hair at my wedding and didn't have any problems with it falling out or the curls uncurling as the day progressed. (Even without another application of hairspray, part-way though the night, which was recommended, but of course I forgot to do.) She was so kind, friendly, reasonable, and flexible that I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a hair stylist. Not only this, but I would even recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great, reasonable hairstylist in general. She clearly knows what she's doing and is worth what she charges... and then some!

Kim is an excellent make up artist. She is kind, considerate, and a professional in her mannerisms and attention to details. She can quickly evaluate the skin/make up care needed and listens to the specific requirements from her clients. She is so fun to have around and makes the make up application fun, knowing how to take the tediousness out of it. One more thing....she stayed with me throughout the wedding and refreshed my make up as needed. I loved that! The same care and skill is applied to her photography skills. Knowing how to read her clients is a gift that she owns. Making her clients feel comfortable so they can pose and smile with ease makes her and her work quality stand out.

Words can't express how happy I was with my make up. Fallon did an amazing job. She fit me in with short notice and was great at getting back to me with questions before our appointment to capture my vision - wow... did she ever! She even met with me ahead of time to go over colors and I was able to purchase some products to keep after. So super happy with the outcome. Everyone complimented me all night and loved my makeup. The makeup she used lasted me all day. From the outside all the way to the end of my evening. I did not touch up once (just lips which is normal) I can't wait to work with her again. I know it will be just as great. Don't hesitate. Fallon is the best! She's super sweet and will deliver. Fallon introduced me to Motives Professional Make-up now I'm addicted to it :). Fallon and her products Rock!!!
